Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere So what does this mean? Is it a side effect maybe of all the vampire blood she has consumed / been transfused with over the last couple of years? Is it some weird quirk in her abilities that just happens to be there? Maybe that is why she seems to be always attracted to vampires. Who knows. knowing my luck Alan Ball will deem this fit to be another mystery than hangs forever unanswered and is just one of those things that is. Oh and Albert Einstein was a halfling (just like Sookie) .. Hmmm OK then!
Little sidebar here for book reader ….. Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Does anyone else think there may be a connection between the name Warlow and the Waldo in the book that was Queen Sophie Ann’s vampire that killed Hadley? Could they be setting it up that QSA was involved all along? After all we know that she has sent Bill to do some spying and it seems to be a rather large coincidence that Claudine was already involved with the protection? Just things that are running through my mind right now so thought I would share them . I guess we will find out, or not, as things unfold.
At the redneck hideaway, left alone with Jessica, poor Hoyt just doesn’t know what to do. It is obvious Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere that he still loves her but she hurt him so badly. Eventually we get a flash to the other room where one of the Milkshake redneck is waiting (and all alone … wonder where the other redneck losers went) and we hear a gunshot, which causes him to rush in and ask Hoyt if he did it, only to have Jessica spring from behind the door and break his neck. Good for Jessica. Not so good for Jessica is it turns out that so much time has passed it is now the middle of the day and no way for her to leave and Hoyt heads off promising to come back with help.
Also out on the road is poor Lafayette is Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere heading home after his nasty adventure last week and his mouth looks so sore. (Hmmmm anyone else ever wonder what happened to the awesome car that Eric gave him … did I miss something somewhere?) During his drive he find Jesus’ little medical kit along with his nametag, and inside the little kit is a vial of vampire blood so Lafayette is able to heal. Even nicer is that as he heals Jesus appears in the car next to him and they are able to have a little moment together and whatever that moment was by the time Lafayette gets home he has his mojo back and then some. It was so great to see him throwing out zingers like he used to. Of course his visitors Arlene and Holly don’t seem so impressed. They have come to ask Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere him to perform a fake séance to convince Terry that the woman from Iraq has forgiven him and called off the curse. Lafayette lets them know that his days of helping are OVER … unless they want to pay $300 which Arlene and Holly look none too impressed with and Lala closes the door. Hilarious!!!
At the police station Andy is interrogating his suspect (With Sam standing right there… Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere hmmmm yes no protocol in the world of Bon Temps apparently) and the idiot has decided that he isn’t going to rat out his friends. Sam convinces Andy to leave them alone for a minute so that he can use some of his "techniques” to try and get answers. Andy agrees and when he leaves Sam starts to get naked and then changes into a snake!! Awesome!! Oh and he get’s the information they need and discover that Jessica is in trouble.
At the front desk, while Andy is getting his coffee, in walks ….. SAM!!! Well obviously not Sam but Luna in her Sam suit. Poor Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Andy! He just doesn’t know what to do. But I have to pause here to give credit to Sam (The actor). What an AMAZING job he does playing Luna playing him!! Flashbacks to him as Tommy playing him and the awesome job he did there but having 2 Sam’s in the same room for several scenes?? Genius!!! Kudos to the whole team for that one! And off they go, 2 Sams and an Andy to rescue Jessica!
When they get there they find that she is unharmed and just sitting with the dead milkshake guy (Reggie) on the floor and confused as hell about why there are 2 Sams and no Hoyt as Hoyt was supposed to be the one sending them to get help. Sam (the Luna one) sniffs around and discovers that a woman has been there recently and who he Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere describes sounds a little like Maxine apart from the smoking part but while they are working this out Luna Sam gets hit with the first of the bad side effects from the skinwalking. Now we all remember I am sure what happened to Tommy but what isn’t clear is what the finite rules for skinwalking are. All we know is that after you run a high fever and vomit blood. Oh and really what does it matter because Alan Ball isn’t really good at sticking to rules anyway. Whatever the case Luna is not looking too good.
They head home and we get a very tender scene with Luna Sam lying on Sam Sam’s lap and Sam Sam trying to convince her that Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere she isn’t going to die. She shifts back to herself and seems for a second as if she will be alright but then the pain hits and she starts vomiting blood. Guess we will have to wait until next week to find out if she is going to make it or not.
for a moment alone with the prisoner: "I have certain techniques." And in what is surely not a Geneva Conventions-sanctioned move, Sam transforms into a cobra and hisses in Joe Bob's face. He discovers that Joe Bob's compadres have targeted Jessica. Luna-as-Sam shows up in the lobby of the Sheriff's Office and confronts Andy, who is understandably confused ("What the monkey spunk?"). He leads Luna-as-Sam back to his office, where she hugs the actual Sam, who is less confused than shocked. Luna-as-Sam explains that she can't seem to shift back, and she's worried she's going to die. Andy: Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 "I hate this goddamn town."
